Who Am I?

My name is Brin Hill - a video production specialist working in the digital media industry for the past 7 years. My passion for photography evolved to cinematography, video editing and documentary production. Motivated and self-taught, I have the unique ability to manage a project from script-to-screen. I master things like Premiere Pro, Photoshop, After Effects, HTML5, CSS3/SASS and all tools that help facilitate a projects needs.

I've co-founded a start-up, traveled the world for 18 months and built this website using HTML, CSS and Javascript. My core values are creativity, collaboration, curiosity and ridiculous results.
